REPORT OF COMMITTEES
8.1
Education Committee
Trustee Andrews reported that the education committee visited Columbia Elementary
School on January 10, 2006 and noted that trustees enjoyed a tour of the school, an
impromptu concert by the choir, and lunch with staff. Continuing with the education
committee report, Trustee Andrews provided information related to the committee
meeting held on February 7, 2006:
a.
The Graduation Portfolio
Assistant Superintendent Dave Stigant, Career Coordinator Dave Kaleski, and the
secondary school principals provided an update on the Graduation Portfolio for
SD67. The Graduation Portfolio requires that students gather and present
“Working Together for Student Success”
www.sd67.bc.ca
School District No. 67 (Okanagan Skaha)
Page 4
Minutes of the Regular School Board Meeting – February 13, 2006
evidence of their competencies in areas beyond their usual curriculum. Rather
than a course, the Portfolio is a three-year process where students work in a selfdirected fashion. It is a four-credit graduation requirement for Graduation: two
credits (Planning 10A – Grade 10) and two credits (Planning 10B – Grade 11).
During grades 10 to 12, teachers work with students to create Portfolio evidence
based on six Portfolio Organizers: Arts and Design, Community Involvement and
Responsibility, Education and Career Planning, Employability Skills, Information
Technology, and Personal Health.
To complete their Graduation Portfolios, students address specific criteria in three
main components: Portfolio Core, Portfolio Choice and Portfolio Presentation. All
SD67 secondary school staff and students will be using the Willock Portfolio
system to track progress and generate reports on Graduation Portfolios. To
support the implementation of the Graduation Portfolio will, however, require
additional staff. The committee recommended that a request for additional
teaching staff be referred for budget consideration.
8.2
b.
French Immersion
Director of Instruction Garth Schafer provided an update on the registration
numbers for the 2006-07 grade 6 Late French Immersion program. As of February
3, there were 67 applications for KVR Middle School and 41 applications for
Summerland Middle School. The committee recommended that the Board approve
three grade 6 classes at KVR Middle School and one grade 6 class at Summerland
Middle School for 2006-07.
c.
Special Education Audit
The Ministry will be conducting a Special Education audit based on the September
30, 2005 enrolment data. The audit is scheduled to occur February 20 – 24, 2006.
The audit will review students reported under the following funding categories:
Physically Dependent, Deaf/Blind and Intensive Behavior Intervention or serious
Mental Illness. The purpose of an audit is to provide reasonable assurance to the
Ministry and school districts that Ministry policies are being followed. Enrolment
audits could result in funding implications if student FTE adjustments are
recommended. Director of Instruction Garth Schafer and District Principal Lynn
Hauptman have been working with the schools to help prepare for the audit.
d.
Deputy Minister’s Meeting
Superintendent Doi provided an overview of the topics that were discussed at the
Deputy Minister’s meeting held February 1-2, 2006.
MOTION:
Andrews/Little that the Board refer the request for an additional 1.143 FTE
teaching staff to support the Graduation Portfolio to the Board’s budget
committee for 2006-07.

2005-06 Budget Amendment
The secretary-treasurer distributed and reviewed a calculation of the district’s
revenue and expenditure adjustments proposed for the final 2005-06 budget. The
budget adjustments are forecast to result in available funds summarized as:
Provincial funding increase
Revenue increase
Revenue Increase
$57,778
92,014
149,792
Expenditure reductions – avg. teacher payroll
Other payroll adjustments
Benefit cost savings
Aboriginal funding increase
Supply/service accounts
Expenditure Decrease
(427,650)
(105,200)
(208,200)
35,625
35,700
$669,725
Total
$819,517
Mr. Regehr noted the reduced costs for the average cost of teacher salaries and a
portion of the benefit cost saving were due to the employment of many new
teachers during this school year who were entitled to a lower than average grid
placement. The net budget effect of this saving was not predictable as our district
only benefits from the reduced cost if a similar change occurs provincially.
The committee reviewed a proposal for additions to the 2005-06 final budget:
District Goals Resources
$100,000
(TRIBES, Roots of Empathy training, Numeracy, Instructional
capacity, Literacy)
Laptop Initiatives
200,000
(Expand laptop project initiatives to include more students-teachers
for year 2 and explore special education applications)
Facility Capital Program

The committee reviewed and clarified the proposed additions and agreed to
recommend that an amended annual budget bylaw incorporating the budget
changes as reviewed be approved.
Following the review of the wording in the amended annual budget bylaw by
Trustee Little,
MOTION:
Little/Huebert that following the first reading of School District No. 67

Photocopier Contract
Assistant Secretary-Treasurer Ron Shongrunden reviewed a proposal for early
renewal of a photocopier contract for 23 machines. The contract provides for an
extension of 51 months to the current contract and replacement of all existing
copiers with new machines at a similar price. Following discussion of options for
photocopying service,
MOTION:
c.
Transportation Contract
The contract for bussing with Berry and Smith Trucking Ltd. expires in August
2007. Due to the lead time required for the routine replacement of buses, previous
contract renewals have been approved at least one year in advance. Berry and
Smith Trucking Ltd. has requested a five-year renewal of the existing contract. It
was noted a general contract increase has not been required during the past three
years, the service is of high quality, and student transportation is assisted through
coordinating some routing with the public transit routes. Following discussion,
MOTION:
d.
Little/Van Alphen that the Berry and Smith Trucking Ltd. contract for
bus services be extended for five years.
CARRIED
Bank Services
The school district currently uses the Royal Bank of Canada for the district’s
banking services. Rates and charges for these services are provided through a
contract which includes the waiving of most service charges, interest on our
account balances, a purchase card system which reduces paperwork on small
purchases, and provision of similar fee arrangements for school and PAC bank
accounts. The current contract for service has expired and the secretary-treasurer
recommended the contract be renewed for three years. Following discussion,
MOTION:
e.
Little/Jamieson that the photocopier contract with Kyocera Mita
Canada Ltd. be renewed to August 31, 2011.
CARRIED
Little/Van Alphen that the contract for bank services with the Royal

the public meeting usually attracts only partner groups and is usually
held too early to analyze the next year’s finances;
the school planning councils’ role with budget is a requirement;
the Board has received requests for greater budget participation by
partner groups; and
staff workload to prepare for budgets and meetings should be considered.
The committee requested a further review of this process which will be provided
later in the meeting.
f.
OSTU Letter
The committee reviewed a request from the OSTU to hold regularly scheduled
meetings with the Board so that issues such as working and learning conditions
and other items of mutual interest can be discussed. While the committee was
supportive of improving communication links, it did not feel that a standing
committee was the solution. Instead, it recommended that issues be dealt with as
the need arises. The committee felt that changes to the budget consultation
process should result in greater consultation from the partner groups on a range of
issues. The committee was also supportive of the board chair meeting with the
OSTU president to discuss ongoing issues.

Policy #725 – Video Surveillance
Secretary-Treasurer Regehr reviewed the use and purpose of video surveillance in
the district and the requirements a policy would place on its use. A draft policy was
received for circulation following the September 28, 2005, policy meeting. Written
comments were received and circulated and Secretary-Treasurer Regehr reviewed
the process to seek student input.
Trustee Van Alphen requested further comments from:
•
•
•
•
OSTU: Mike Kimmis supported the addition of a privacy impact assessment
and observed video surveillance should not be used to supervise staff. Mr.
Kimmis supported the policy as it has been rewritten.
CUPE: Zoe Magnus supported Mr. Kimmis’s comments and suggested the
policy should exclude more areas from surveillance and that trustees should
be responsible to approve each request for surveillance.
OSPVPA: Katie Hicks noted school administrators support the proposal and
that they would like to be consulted on its use at their schools.
DPAC: DeeDee Kolodychuk did not provide additional comments.
Trustees provided a number of comments including:
•
•
•
•
•
•
changes to the original draft policy are an improvement;
the purpose of surveillance is to reduce vandalism;
the expectation that policy development is a Board responsibility and policy
implementation is an administration responsibility;
the primary intention for use is for the exterior of buildings and entrances but
there may be requirements for limited interior surveillance;
the intent of the policy is enhancing student safety and reducing vandalism;
and
surveillance is not to replace supervision.
The committee recommended that the draft policy be changed to add the
statement “It is not the intent of the policy to monitor the work of staff.” Following
this addition,
MOTION:
9.0
Van Alphen/Huebert that draft Policy No. 725 – Video Surveillance
be approved.
CARRIED
REPORT OF SECRETARY-TREASURER

meeting with DPAC and school planning council members and trustees on April 11; and a
special board meeting on May 2, 2006 to approve the budget. These meetings would
provide the opportunity for each partner group to present their proposals and discuss
them with the committee and would provide for increased consultation and engagement
of all partner groups in the budget process.
